Deep veins are veins that exist deep within the body, primarily in the arms, shoulder, legs, pelvis, and neck. The deep veins in the legs and pelvis are particularly prone to developing blood clots, especially following surgery or an injury, in bedridden patients, or after prolonged sitting. This results in a common and serious condition known as deep venous thrombosis or DVT. Clots that break free from their point of origin and then travel to the lungs are known as pulmonary emboli and can be fatal.
Please only submit sites dealing with the health aspects of DVTs, pulmonary emboli, and related thrombosis events.
Sites primarily selling products (e.g. selling items to help people avoid DVTs or to make sufferers more comfortable) should be submitted to an appropriate subcategory under Shopping. Sites primarily dealing with drugs used in the prevention and/or treatment of thrombosis should be submitted to the appropriate subcategory under Drugs and Medications.
This category features sites describing clinical trials and studies related to the prevention, treatment, and/or assessment of thrombosis disorders.
This category will generally contain links to categories for medications used in the treatment of thrombosis as well as any sites that deal primarily in the treatment of the disorder.
Please note that this category is for informational sites dealing with the treatment of thrombosis.
Sites selling therapeutic products online should be submitted to the appropriate subcategory of Shopping: Health. Sites for companies that manufacture products that aide in the treatment of thrombosis should be submitted to the appropriate subcategory of Business: Healthcare: Products and Services.
Submitting your site to the wrong category can significantly delay the review of your site so please submit carefully.
